Summary

To Whom It May Concern, 

I am a Graphic Designer searching for a position at a successful and creative organization.I have approximately ten years of valuable experience to draw from to make an immediate impact.I have worked on print advertisement, email ads and web site graphics, and a variety of other projects. I can work independently as well as with a team to accomplish a wide variety of design projects and other tasks that may be required. I have also interacted with customers and clients at prior employment positions, and always strive to satisfy the customer’s needs in an efficient and professional manner. I believe my creativity and flexibility allows me to adapt to change in almost any design situation. I will make excellent design decisions for your company, and produce graphics and typography that effectively market your products and services.

I can demonstrate a keen eye for color, a very good sense of space, and my attention to detail is impeccable. I strive to be a hard worker, and will put in the hours and effort necessary to get the job done no matter what the sacrifice. Working on several projects at once is easy for me, and I won't be satisfied until the client is happy. My resume is attached for your review, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,

Michael Wolf
